CPS has the right school for you—one that matches your educational interests and passions. We have schools specializing in different focus areas such as STEM, special education, International Baccalaureate programs, English language learners, the arts, and early childhood education. Work with the CPS Talent Office team to find the right fit.
CPS will help you grow as a teacher and advance in your career by providing professional growth opportunities in a collaborative and supportive environment. Many of our teachers receive mentorship and instructional coaching from experienced educators.
Research consistently shows that teachers are the leading in-school contributor to student achievement. By teaching at CPS, you’ll make a meaningful difference in the lives of Chicago’s children by helping them along a path to graduate from high school ready for college and career success. And if you’re a CPS graduate, teaching can be a powerful way to give back to your community.
One of the reasons CPS is such a great place to teach is that you’ll join a diverse community of talented teachers and students across the district. We value teachers of diverse backgrounds who reflect the rich cultures and communities of our city.
You’ll receive a highly competitive salary and benefits package at CPS while working and living in one of the world’s great cities. Time Out’s “City Life Index” rated Chicago the best city in the world for having it all–diverse cultures, great food, music, arts and culture, sports, and affordable neighborhoods.
Come teach with us and be part of an education success story. CPS students are achieving success at record levels, thanks to high-performing teachers and principals, the students’ hard work, and a supportive community. Students are learning faster than peers in nearly every other school system in the U.S.—even those in more affluent districts—according to recent Stanford University research. Freshman on-track and graduation rates are at an all-time high, and more CPS students than ever are enrolling in college.

Whether you enjoy theater, comedy, music, sports, museums, or architecture -- Chicago has something for everyone.
Chicago has a vibrant restaurant scene, and the diversity of our neighborhoods offers some of the best authentic
cuisine you can find.
No matter the weather, Chicagoans are active year round at pop-up ice rinks; lakefront beaches and trails;
and art, music and food festivals.
Chicago has affordable housing in almost every neighborhood, and between bike lanes and a reliable public
transit system, owning a car is not necessary.
